so, you can set that validation for all the form elements
or

$("input").each(function(){
  $(this).onkeyup(function(){
    $(this).val($(this).val().replace(/[^a-z]/g,''));
  });
});

this will make sure that all textboxes in the form cannot have anything else than alphabets

Whatever you might do with jQuery or other client-side validation, you must also do on the server side after the form data has been submitted.  You can use a regular expression something like this to detect unacceptable characters.  You can use preg_replace to change these characters into blanks, NULLs, question marks, etc.

$regex = '/[^A-Z ]/i';
